Great job parking, Lion! Eh.
It's a little crooked.
[Growls softly] Never mind.
It's perfect! [Chuckles] Is Lion gonna be okay parked out here? Oh, yeah.
Uh, I just gotta lock him up.
Boop, boop! Don't worry.
He's not going anywhere.
I still can't believe this'll be your first time inside of a library.
Why? Because libraries are full of your favorite thing.
[Music] [Gasps] Books! Shh! Books.
All right.
Time to beat these books.
What'd they do to you? I'm mainly trying to get a head-start on seventh grade.
We'll be covering a lot of new stuff, so I just want to be prepared.
Can't you just use your phone to look stuff up? [Sighs] Last time I relied on the Internet for info, I ended up writing a very, uh erroneous paper about raccoons having heat-vision.
Raccoons have heat vision?! Librarian: Shh! You should take a look around while I get started.
There's tons of stuff here I'm sure you'll love.
Nonfiction? Wild.
[Grunts] Whee! [Laughs] Wow! There's even cool books on the bottom shelves! Huh? What are you doing down here, little buddy? [Blows] It's blank! Whoa! [Gasps] Connie! - Look! - It's blank? It's the journal of first mate Buddy Buddwick! - Like, the real thing? - Yeah! Jamie did a play about how Buddy helped the first Mayor Dewey discover Beach City! There's even drawings of gem locations in here! Oh, my gosh! Forget homework.
Let's take it from the top! Yeah! [Drum and fife music plays] Buddy: After narrowly escaping certain doom, Captain William Dewey and I, his first mate Buddy, founded the land of Beach City.
With Captain Dewey's legacy cemented well, bronzed I wondered what my legacy would be.
Would anyone remember my name? Or will it be washed away by the ocean of time? I'm picturing buddy as Jamie being all sad.
Oh, yeah.
Drama zone.
No! I shall not disappear! I shan't die a lowly first mate! I schwill do something great with my life! I'll comb the world in search of greatness! And so began a new chapter of my life to explore the previously unexplored and to make my mark on the world! I traveled for many days and nights until, finally, I found myself in a field of sorts or, should I say, a field of swords, intermingled with giant, sweet-smelling strawberries as big as one's head.
"Who could have wielded such a weapon?" I pondered.
"What sort of battle could this have been used for?" I contemplated.
I continued to sketch, sinking into deep concentration when I suddenly felt the touch of a familiar hand.
It was two of the Crystal Gems.
Would the Gems have looked different back then? Yes.
It was two of the Crystal Gems that had saved my captain from a sea beast.
And now we're here to save you.
But I'm not in peril.
I'm just a humble traveler who wants my name to be remembered by everyone for all time.
Well, travel not here, traveler, as this place is very dangerous.
Very well.
I'll go elsewhere.
Wait! There are many places on this Earth that a human like you should avoid.
Here's a convenient marking of all the places where you should absolutely, under no circumstances, visit if you'd like to keep your short life.
Only the bravest, most courageous, most memorable explorers would dare to visit these fascinating places.
Yes, that's essentially what I just said.
Anyway, glad we cleared that up.
Fare thee well! [Bell dings] Surely, if I do explore these places, I'll be remembered as brave and courageous! [Music] Steven: He drew the communication hub.
Connie: Sparkling slugs? Where'd he get these names from? Ooh! He got this one right! I feel like I'm back there.
What's this place? I don't know this one.
Ooh! It looks like he went to the kindergarten! I found myself at the most amazing locations.
Very pointy.
Though I could not shake the feeling that something about this journey felt a bitoff.
I wonder why all these tiny caves are here.
Hey, Buddy! [Screams] Th-This is Buddy speaking.
Get out of my hole.
Lo, it was the third Crystal Gem.
Do you, uh, live here? Used to! Nowadays, I just come back every so often to see how the fam's doing.
The fam? [Chuckles] Hey, how you been? Aw! You getting taller? Uh, give me a sec I have a visitor.
Why are you here?! Oh.
My apologies.
Here, I'll show you.
I've been traveling the globe as an adventurer and explorer.
Neat! I've been on a journey to discover places no one has ever been before.
But by the looks of this place, many people have been here before.
Hold on.
Did you make this map? It was drawn up for me by your compatriots.
So, pbht! What have you discovered on it? Well, I uh That is Oh.
Uh Oh, dear.
I haven't discovered a single thing on this map! Yeah, man.
You're just following someone else's footsteps.
And here I was, claiming to be a great explorer and adventurer, when all I really am is a tourist! [Sobbing] Whoa.
Don't get all sad on me.
This is why my journey hasn't felt right! [Sobbing continues] Uh Uh, oh, yeah! Why don't you try and find the sand castle? [Sniffles] Uh, wha? Out of the way.
I'll show you.
It's right around here in this sandy area.
- Really? - Yeah! They say it's never in the same place twice.
It's always rebuilding itself all over the desert.
That sounds like the perfect adventure for me! And I'll be the first one to see it! Heh.
Thank you for your help.
Goodbye! Come back anytime! But not too much! [Birds squawking] I've been wandering this desert for 10 days now.
I suppose I could take off my explorer's coat for a bit of relief, but if I wasn't wearing this, people would see me and think, "Oh, just some man wandering around.
Not important at all.
Why, he can't even find the elusive sand castle!" "Ha, ha, ha" they'd say.
"What a fool," they'd continue.
This is it, then the end of my adventure.
I've just followed a map to my own end.
And this will be the last thing I ever see as I expire an angel and her one, two, three several lions, here for my soul.
Is this the end? I guess so.
[Chuckling] Oh, wait.
There's a bunch more.
As I slowly regained consciousness, I became aware of a large figure in the shape of a giant woman.
The ringlets of her hair spilled over her shoulders and back like a swath of roses.
Mom! Hey.
Are you okay? I realized I was surrounded by her pack of Seven lions?! Please don't eat me! Oh, don't worry.
We mean no harm.
That's good.
What brings a human out to a place like this? I was a first mate on a ship, but we found land.
And then I realized I didn't want to stay in that land, so I went to find more land.
But then I was told not to find that land because it was really dangerous.
But I wanted to prove myself and Look.
I wrote it all down here.
Why am I looking for the sand castle that probably doesn't even exist? A sand castle? Yes.
I've combed these deserts for weeks, and there's been no sign of one.
Would that be a sign of one? That's it! I've gotta record this! I've got to Wait.
You saw it first.
This doesn't count at all! I'm a terrible explorer.
Eat me.
It's all I'm good for.
Rose: Now, now, that's not true at all.
Sure, all these places have been explored before, but they haven't been recorded so intimately as they have been in this journal.
It makes them new and special all over again for any reader to experience.
Have you ever considered becoming an author? And become an author I did.
I wrote up a storm, making book after book, so many until I realized I could fill a library with them! [Gasps] I get it! Both: The Buddy Buddwick Library! Librarian: Shh! He really did leave a mark on this town.
Hold the phone.
Is that what he looked like? Connie: [Chuckles] We imagined him way off.
- I kind of liked our version better.
- [Laughs] Me, too.
[Wind whistling] [Waves crashing]
